Everton striker Moise Kean has helped purchase respirator machines and face masks for hospitals in his native Italy to aid the country’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Kean has joined fellow players from representative Mino Raiola's football agency in donating to the cause as part of the We Are One Against #Covid-19 campaign, with plans to broaden the initiative to other countries.
More than 10,000 people have died from coronavirus in Italy – the highest number of any country in the world.
Kean has also enthusiastically thrown his weight behind Everton’s Blue Family initiative, a coordinated outreach and engagement campaign to maintain contact with isolated fans and provide vital support and assistance.
On Mother’s Day, the 20-year-old called a supporter who is self-isolating during the pandemic due to her being in remission from cancer treatment.
